The physics of how a kite gains lift is very similar to how an airplane gains lift. To get a kite airborne it is sometimes necessary to run while pulling the kite behind you. This creates "apparent wind" which creates lift and pushes the kite up. Once the kite reaches a high enough altitude where the wind becomes strong enough, you can stop running and the kite will remain aloft.
The wind is up, the sun is shining and some of the most amazing kites are soaring in the sky above Los Cabos, Baja California, Mexico. In Cabos Kite games are designed to be fun, rather than strict contests with lots of rules.
